In early 2021, Orange Poland announced that it expected to reduce carbon emissions by 65% by 2025, compared with 2015 levels, and achieve net zero by 2040. How will Orange Poland achieve these targets? According to Daniel Piechocki, Director of Infrastructure and Services Maintenance, Orange Poland's green and energy-saving strategy consists of two parts. The first is the energy optimization plan launched in 2014. The second is based on Huawei Poland's green energy procurement plan. Orange Poland is taking practical measures to achieve its target of reducing carbon emissions by 65% by 2025.
In the Lighting up the Future Studio, Hervé Suquet, Orange's Senior Vice President of Energy, shared the group's green development practices.
